HOW TO RECYCLE GLASS
Recycling Saves Our Resources
Glass is 100% recyclable and can be recycled repeatedly with any loss of quality or purity. Glass recycling contributes significantly to preserving some of our planet’s finite resources. You might be surprised to learn when a ton of glass is recycled, it save 1330 pounds of sand, 433 pounds of soda, 433 pounds of limestone and 151 pounds of feldspar. Recycled glass can be substituted for 95% of the raw materials needed to manufacture new glass. When recycled glass is used in the manufacture of new glass, energy consumption required for the furnace heating portion of the process is reduced by 95%, and emissions and the use of raw materials are reduced. This reduces costs for manufacturers and consumers and helps protect our planet from the devastating effects of global warming.
We Can Do Better!
Approximately 41% of beer and soft drink bottles and 34% of wine and liquor bottles are recycled annually. Only 15% of food and other glass jars make it into the recycling stream. Just 34.1% of glass containers overall end up being recycled. This has the same environmental impact as taking 210,000 cars off the road annually. Some glass containers cannot be recycled for the manufacture of new glass due to various industry requirements, such as contamination or size limitations. Nonetheless, this glass can be recovered for secondary uses such as tile manufacturing, filtration, sand blasting, concrete paving, and parking lot surfacing.
Reducing Pollution through Glass Recycling
Glass that has been crushed and is ready to be reused in the manufacture of new glass containers is called cullet. Energy costs for the production of glass are reduced 2-3% for every 10% of cullet used in manufacturing. Every 6 tons of recycled glass used prevents the production of one ton of carbon dioxide. When glass is produced by using recycled glass, air pollution related to production is reduced by 20% and related water pollution is reduced by 50%. Each 100 tons of glass recycled creates 8 jobs.
We Want to Help with Your Glass Recycling Needs
Glass recycling is a win-win for all as we lower costs, reduce landfill volume, preserve our planet’s finite resources, lower the amount of emissions and pollutants, and create jobs. If you have glass for recycling, you can drop it off at one of our conveniently located nationwide pick up centers, or contact us and we’ll arrange to pick it up for free. You can track the progress of your recycles through our website. If items can be repaired and reused, we will salvage those items. Items that cannot be salvaged will be recycled, allowing them to be reused in the manufacture of new items, which preserves our natural non-renewable resources and lowers pollution. Rest assured, we employ only ethical recycling practices – we never ship materials to landfills in third world nations, unlike some of our competitors.
